TOM GREEN COUNTY, TX (July 20, 2023) – Monday afternoon, 2-year-old Mazlynn Palmer died in a multi-vehicle crash on US Highway 87.
The crash involved an SUV, a semi-truck, and a motorcycle. Reports said that the crash happened on US Highway 87, approximately 9 miles north of San Angelo in Tom Green County.
According to reports, 26-year-old Morgan Lashea Palmour of San Angelo drove an SUV. Meanwhile, 23-year-old James Palmour drove a motorcycle.
Reports confirmed that both vehicles headed south on US Highway 87 in the right lane, with the SUV following the motorcycle at slow speeds.
Meanwhile, 58-year-old Jose Sanchez drove a semi-truck south on US 87 in the right lane. However, Sanchez failed to control his speed and struck the SUV. The crash pushed the SUV to strike the motorcycle.
As a result, all three vehicles rolled over and stopped on the shoulder of the highway.
Meanwhile, the DPS confirmed that the 2-year-old wasn’t properly restrained in the SUV. Justice of the Peace Susan Werner declared her dead at the scene.
Moreover, another 4-year-old girl in the SUV was also not secured properly and suffered injuries in the crash. Thus, responders took her to Shannon Medical Center.
Officers confirmed that Morgan Palmour, the driver of the SUV, failed to wear a seatbelt while James Palmour didn’t wear a helmet at the time of the crash.
Responders transported the Palmours and Sanchez to Shannon for treatment of non-incapacitating injuries.
Meanwhile, a verified GoFundMe was set up for the girl who died, for her sister Mya and uncle James Palmour who were both airlifted to Lubbock for treatment of their injuries. Meanwhile, Morgan Palmour had major surgery at Shannon Medical Center.
The fundraiser’s organizer, Lindsey Elliott, revealed, “I am asking for prayers and financial assistance for this family as they navigate the future. I have listed Jackie Thompson as the beneficiary, he is Morgan’s uncle, our employee. Jackie will see to it that funds are spent to cover funeral and living expenses until Morgan is able to return to work.”
